As 2016 comes to a close, we would like to take a moment to share our achievements from the past year. This year, 60 entrepreneurs and not-for-profit organizations successfully graduated from our programs. YEDI’s Acceleration Campus continues to grow with 45 companies residing and developing in the space.
Throughout the year new programs, both international and local, were introduced to support a broader array of entrepreneurs. The senior mentorship program is a unique and innovative initiative, which connects retired professionals to early stage entrepreneurs in order to guide them on the path to success. Since launching in September, over 60 entrepreneurs received support from these valuable mentors.
This summer, YEDI went abroad and delivered it’s intensive entrepreneurship program in Israel. The participants received workshop-based training in entrepreneurship and an opportunity to present their venture to top-funders of the Israeli start-up eco-system.
YEDI was also chosen to receive funding from the Federal Government and now provides seed funding of up to $30,000 to innovative entrepreneurs who successfully complete the Incubator Track. Applications for the program are currently accepted until February 10th, 2017. To learn more and apply click here.
Looking back at all the progress made this year, we would like to thank our partners, sponsors, donors and alumni for being a part of this unique community which keeps growing with time. Your contributions enable us to provide valuable and necessary services to not-for-profit organizations and emerging entrepreneurs. We extend our very best wishes for a happy new year. May the upcoming year provide us all with great opportunities, growth and strength.
Wishing you a healthy and prosperous year,
The YEDI team
